The all-new 2014 Mazda CX-5 has been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick and will soon arrive at Bright Bay Mazda in Bay Shore, NY.
Online PR News – 30-January-2013 – Bay Shore, NY – The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has released its most recent crash-test results and they rank the 2014 Mazda CX-5 as a Top Safety Pick for 2013. The CX-5 has received a refresh for the 2014 model year that includes a new engine option, and it will soon be available at Bright Bay Mazda in Bay Shore, NY.
In addition to the 2014 CX-5, the 2013 Mazda3 was also named a 2013 Top Safety Pick by the IIHS. “The Mazda 3 and the CX-5 are two very important vehicles for Mazda and our customers,” said Jim O'Sullivan, president and CEO, Mazda North American Operations. “Receiving the 'Top Safety Pick' distinction is a testament to Mazda's dedication to building vehicles that will keep their occupants safe and sound.”
In order to earn Top Safety Pick honors, the 2014 Mazda CX-5 had to earn a “good” rating in the IIHS’s stringent collision testing categories of frontal, side, overlap, rear impact and roof strength. The 2014 CX-5 is outfitted with a suite of safety technologies that helped it to earn the Top Safety Pick, including: six air bags, electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist, traction and stability control.
The 2014 CX-5 also has Mazda’s SkyActiv unit-body design that not only increases safety, but also helps to bolster fuel economy numbers. The already light-weight CX-5 dropped 14 pounds for 2014, and is said to be lighter than the compact Mazda3.
Mazda has added a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder SkyActiv engine option to the CX-5 for 2014, which boosts output to 184 horsepower and 185 lb.-ft. of torque; an increase of 29 and 35 respectively over the previous 2.0-liter engine. The 2.5-liter is still able to return 25 mpg city and 32 mpg highway thanks in part to its light-weight design.
